Venice day two – Wow

We started out the day moving from our hotel in the burbs to our hotel just off the Grand Canal in Venice. We schlepped our bags to the bus stop and waited to get on. Along with 40 other people. We watched the first 2 buses go buy before we decided we would have to split up to be able to get on board. The third bus got Cathy, Vance and Vangie on board, all that was missing was the […]

Venice, Day one Rainy and amazing.

This morning we ate breakfast at the hotel, contennial style which was included with our room. Vance and Vangie were up eariler than us so had eaten by the time we go there but sat and had another coffee while we fuelled up. The result of Vance and Vangie being up before us was that they had gone exploring the area around our hotel. So when we left, they new exactly where to go to get our bus/vaporetto tickets. (A vaporetto […]

Everyone took shelter under one of the pool huts and was going to wait it out. After all, it was still warm, just rainy. After about 30 minutes of rain, I decided to bail out and go back to the room. (I had my […]

Mexico – Day 12 – Snorkel

We were up early today and had a quick breakfast and then headed to the lobby to catch the transportation to the Snorkel tour. It was a short ride, (25 min) to the beach area where the snorkel tour was run. I was happy to see the national part sign up saying you must wear biodegradable sunscreen, not touch the coral, fish, plants etc.  It looks like they are really trying to preserve the reef. Once we were out in […]
